I did not take down a screen shot when I had the chance, but originally the prompt was in red. It said that the Windows OS wanted to access something (some apparent destination). The suggestion told me it could do something with a VPN but if I was not familiar with this request I should block it.
Now there has been 22 blocked events so far, all starting because I blocked the initial prompt.
There was a keyterm: pseudo… if that helps.
I would like to know what this code/source 3 is and what causes it. I attached a screenshot for reference.
Yes, I am using OpenDNS. I suspected it had something to do with that but I had no clue what was going on.
I have another question, but it would not be on this topic.
I have been suggested before that the Stealth Ports Wizards is beneficial. However, the last time I enabled it by default I have been receiving tons of intrusion blocks, why is that?
When you run SheldsUp, the GRC site sends out a series of requests looking for responses. If your PC is behind a router, the router is the device that sends the response back to ShieldsUp, not your PC. This can be verieifed by checking the IP address that ShieldsUp reports it is testing. You’ll find that the tested IP address is the public IP address of your router, not the private (192.168.1.X) address of your PC.
I remember that my router failed the ICMP Echo (ping) test; does this have to do with the settings in my router, not my firewall?
kail, actually was helping me with this issue before… but that was a year ago. We never came to a resolution because communication was cut off. I recall him speaking about some DMZ function (that should be the function where all traffic can go through unrestricted, but its not exactly “safe”). Any suggestions, or am I going off topic beyond Comodo support? ><
Was this done from a test web site like GRC? Then again your router responded and CIS.

Thanks, I appreciate your patience and time. ???
Without reading that topic I think kail may have suggested to put your computer in DMZ (demilitarized zone) so you can actually test the firewall. With DMZ you connect a computer directly to the web passing by the router. That is the only way to test the firewall om your computer when using a testing web site like GRC.
Your first post mentions having had an alert mentioning pseudo… something. Can you go to the Firewall Application Rules (Firewall → Network Security Policy) and see if there is a rule for Window Operating System. You probably blocked something there. Easiest thing is to delete the rule and see what happens and let us know about it preferably with screenshots.
